Why Sex Education is Important in School ? Sex is an essential aspect of human life. It is a natural phenomenon and without applying it the cycle of the human being cannot move ahead or cannot assume.

Establishing crime committees and placed them all around the country can also help in preventing youth crime from getting worse other than putting at least one liaison officer in every school to keep an eye on problematic students in school.

If adolescents decide to undergo cosmetic surgery under the premises of believing that it is the easiest and quickest solution, their mind-set is erroneous as they are avoiding the root of the problem and cosmetic surgery should not be on top of the list (Posner, 2014). This can negatively affect the mindset of teenagers as they would develop the intuition of undergoing surgery rather than accepting the way they look, which in turn might carry on for the years to come where they would try to get rid of blemishes by considering cosmetic surgeries as an option from the beginning. It can also lead to an alarming psychological impact of adolescents developing this instinct of pursuing cosmetic surgery until they are satisfied with a certain look which can get out of hand if none of the looks is appeasing (Bora, 2012).
